I was fortunate to be invited to shoot an editorial for Pastorale magazine, a new online fashion magazine based in California. It’s in this month’s issue … check it out online! Tons of thanks to my incredible team that included Madalyn Knebel (model), Emily Haight of Bonnie and the Mermaids (stylist), V2V Kerrytown (wardrobe), Jerad Rushlows of Daybreak Salon (hair) and Melissa Helton (makeup). You guys all did an amazing job!

Lately I’ve been going through some of my old photographs from the last several years I’ve spent traveling. I added a new section of my personal photos from my travels to my website ( ), with intentions of adding more throughout the next year after visits I have planned to Nashville, Chicago, and New York City. Here’s one of my favorite shots of a very typically sunny day I spent in Santa Monica, California, a few years ago while on one of my photographic adventures.

(Happy birthday to the King of the Poets)

At first, the feeling of nothing behind you and nothing below you is frightening and disorienting. And then suddenly — after a few years of feeling that way — you begin to understand that it was like this all along. There were never any guarantees, and even your best laid plans have often gone awry. You start to realize that the feeling of only clouds beneath your feet is the lightest, best, most sure thing you’ve ever known.

Last month, I had the opportunity to photograph Elise Mesner. Elise is an absolutely stunning (and ridiculously talented) model/photographer from Detroit. I still have a few more sets from our shoot to finish editing, but you can keep up with them as they’re posted by visiting my Facebook page.
